80-Year-Old Granny Shoots Intruder


This is why American citizens must not give up the right to defend themselves.

Barb Moles is 80 years old, has eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.  She also can shoot a gun if her family is in danger, and that is just what she did, killing the intruder.

Moles was at home in Sultan, Washington with her husband and adult son, when she heard a “commotion”, walked into the kitchen and found her husband, John, bleeding on the kitchen floor.   He managed to tell her he’d been stabbed.

She ran into the bedroom and grabbed a pistol that John had given her as a Christmas gift a few years ago.  As she walked back into the hallway, she saw the stranger and shot him four times.  Three bullets found their mark, and he was dead on the scene.

Police believe the robber, 25-year-old Steven N. Sheppard, was after prescription drugs, as the family’s vitamins had been spilled everywhere.    He had attacked John with a knife and hit him with a crowbar.

John Moles, a retired Boeing worker, has spent the past week in intensive care, but it improving.

Moles said she would do it again if she had to.    “You know how mothers are with their kids. That’s the way I am with my husband,” she said. “I just protect his back. I’m not just the typical granny – in case you haven’t noticed.”

“I just did what I had to do and I’m so sorry for [the intruder’s] family,” she continued. “I just feel badly for his family.”

According to Q13FOX News, Sheppard is a felon who did time for robbery in 2013.
